I love this product. It is an extremely close dupe to Benefit's Dandelion, only with better packaging. It is best for pale girls, though. Bought it cheap through beautycrunch.

Wow am I the only one who liked this product?!?!?!
The pretty pink blush gives a nice and healthy glow of pink on my cheeks, I look instantly awake. I also layer the highlighting powder on top of it to emphasize the dewy look.

wow, I'm nearly the odd man out, I liked this product. The color is subtle but my pale, over 45 year old skin needs subtle. No sheen that I'm noticing and that's good for me. Sheen shows wrinkles too much. I also think the packaging is adorable! The cost is high but I bought it on sale for $7.00, can't beat that with a stick!

this barely shows up on my NC 20 skin. I understand it's supposed to be a subtle all over color, but the truth is this is nothing, absolutely nothing at all. And the highlight shade is way too chalky. totally waste of money. ><

First I would like to say that I am new to Stila products (I am a Merle Norman girl), but I always like to try new things, like this blush/highlighter. I am a cool-toned ppp and the acutal blush color suits my coloring perfectly, and I use just a slight touch of the shimmer to illuminate my cheekbones (I don't want to look like disco ball, lol!). I bought this at Sephora for $28, plus the dreaded 8.75% sales tax (I am a tax victim of New York state), but I think this product will last me a long time as I need very little of it (shows up on my pale skin nicely, without having to pile a ton of it on to get it to show up). I also bought Stila's e/s duo in 'lily' which has an orangy-peach shade and a rosy-pink and it goes very well with this blush. I look forward to trying more Stila products.

All Over Glow in Pretty Pink comes with a platinum highlighter and a pink blush/all-over color. Both colors are very pretty, but incredibly sheer so often to get even a subtle glow you have to use a lot. The packaging is cute enough but like many of Stila's products it's cardboard, so it's not very portable. I'll use what I have, but it's simply too sheer to bother with most of the time.

I wanted to try a shimmer product and was debating between this and one of the Benefit powders. I decided on this one because I thought I'd be getting more bang for my buck with the two separate powders. The pink blush is pale but can be built up to a very subtle, pretty, natural flush. The highlighting powder is more shimmery than sparkly, which I love, and is perfect for adding a little something extra. I usually apply the blush with a large brush to the apples of my cheeks, and apply the shimmer powder with a smaller brush to my eyelids (to absorb any oil and act as a natural eyeshadow) and to my cheekbones and temples to highlight. Very natural and easy, and while it isn't the be all and end all for me, I like it. I took off a few lippies for the price (a little high) and the fact that no brush is provided with the set. Was fun to try, but I probably won't repurchase once I'm finished with it.

This was a lot of money to spend on a product! I got this at full price from Sephora on a trip to the US, somewhat on impulse. At first I was annoyed with myself for spending nearly $30 on something so bland - it's a basic light pink matte blush and a champagney coloured highlighter. But as time went on it became a daily staple, and I realised that what I dismissed as bland was in fact wonderfully subtle - the blush can be built from a barely perceptible warmth on the cheeks to a rosy glow. The highlighter is so finely milled and the shimmer so muted that with a light hand nobody need realise that the radiance of your face is even due to makeup! It's a my-face-but-better lifesaver for bad skin days, extremely high quality, and although the cardboard packaging is not ideal, it does have a good mirror in the lid and a pretty sturdy structure.
EDIT April 09 - This has begun to appear on the discount circuit. I was happy to see it again and snapped it up for £7.99 from eBay. One of the key products to snag before Stila closes its doors forever.

I really like this product, but I'm a bigger fan of the pink blush part than I am the highlighter. I'm a cool-toned PPP, and the pink blush shows up nicely on me. The color works very well for me, too. When I want a little extra color I also use it in conjuction with my darker/brighter gel or cream blushes (like Stila Poppy or Pixi Rosy). I use the blush a LOT, but I don't use the highlighter nearly as often. I've never been a big highlighter person, although I am a HUGE fan of Meteorites. But lately I've been using the highlighter a little in targeted areas, like on my brow bone, and I really like it too. I'm actually a fan of the packaging, too. I think it's cute and different. I don't know that I would want all my products to come in cardboard packages, but it's a nice change. I tested mine in the store (I got it at Sephora) to make sure it would open and close easily and the highlighter would slide out easily. And the magnetic closure stays tightly closed but opens easliy. Overall, it's a different multi-functional product that I like a lot. I was debating buying this or Benefit's Dandelion (I'm not a fan of Benefit products AT ALL but that one looked appealing) and decided on this Stila product. I am so glad I did. I find myself reaching for it a lot more than I thought I would when I first bought it. Lately I've been using it every day. You get a lot of product, but I would buy it again when I eventually run out of it (which I don't see happening any time soon, however). Also, for reference, I'm a Stila 10 Watts PPP.

I really really wanted to like this since most of Stila's products are awesome...but I'm not really impressed. I love the shimmery highlighter, it's perfect for my fair skin, but the pink blush-type stuff (is it blush?)barely registers. I have to dig into it with my blush brush to get any color on the bristles. Most of all, the packaging is atrocious!!! For $28, I get a cardboard compact?!?! No brush, no puff, jeez...even Wet N Wild humors me by giving me a little cheap-o applicator. It's difficult to get the highlighter to slide out of the bottom and when I slide it back in it makes a squeaking noise that literally makes my dog howl when she hears it. So...$28 for a product that I have to struggle to use the one part of it I like. I won't take it back to Sephora, but I won't buy it again. I'll just use up the highlighter and call it a lesson learned.

Uhhh. Where do I begin? I generally am a mongo fan of Stila but this unfortunately was one of their duds for me. I really really wanted to like this but it just did not show up on me. The pink did not register and the beige highlighter barely shimmered at all. I was hoping this would be the more refined "grown up" version of their all over shimmer powders but this is ridiculous. Plus, it was messy, powder everywhere. I am pretty tan year round (stila 60 watts) Want to try Guerlain's meteorites next.

I absolutely love this product! It really does give you a very pretty all over glow. I dont really have anything bad to say about this product-it stays on and wears well,the pigments are sheer but there, the 2 colors are great, and the packaging is very pretty. My only tip is to ONLY wear this on your cheeks, because if worn on the forehead, your face can look too pink. I cant wait to try the sugarloaf duo! UPDATE: Sugarloaf definately takes the cake in the "stila duo blush/highlighter" battle. Sugarloaf was more versatile and blendable, AOG really only worked when my skin had a bit of color.

I am a PPP, very fair. I really like the colors. I use the Stila tinted moisturizer, then just a touch of the blush on my cheekbones and the highlighter shade elsewhere for the subtle "glow". I am very glad to have a product that while it appears very pink, it goes on very lightly. I am able to get it to darken up but have no need with my skin tone. The package is a nice idea. Expensive idea, cheap execution. The mirror is handy but how many little mirrors do you have to have? I would rather have had a cheaper price for the product. The cardboard drawer is a pain. It can be tough to pull out and I imagine something is going to break before I am done with the product. I would buy this again for sure.

Wow, was this a cheap product or what?? It was the cute idea that sold it. The color sucks. There was more pink on my counter top and sinks than on my face. The stuff is so cheap that it just falls everywhere and doesn't stick to the brush. You can barely see the color, and the highlighter barely shows up either. Definitely not worth the price.

I wanted to like this so badly because it looked very pretty. But, like others this didn't show up on me at all. The pink powder did nothing, even when i scraped it with a mascara wand to try and get more pigment nothing showed up. The shimmer highlighter didn't really have much effect either. You could barely see it. Overall I think this would've been a really cute idea and product, if it had worked. Don't waste your money :)

I would have to agree--this was not pigmented enough for me. I had to apply layers and layer just to get a hint of color to show up. As for the highlighter, it was just so-so. I really wanted to like it tho...
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
The packaging for this is gorgeous! There is a matte pink rose colour and also a gorgeous shimmery highlighter. I used this over my Stila Illuminating Liquid and Powder Foundations across my forehead and down bridge of nose and on cheeks and my face glowed! I am a PPP 10 watts in Stila for reference. I love it!

Pretty rose color blush with separate pinky-champagne color highlighter. I am light PPP and the rose blush is plenty pigmented for my skin. It is just as pigmented as my other Lancome blushes. It went on fine, so I am not sure why some others are having problems with it. (?) Anyway, the rose color is soft and pretty, and the pinky-champagne highlighter is finely-milled and "softly" highlighting - it is not "sparkly" or "glittery" at all - just a soft luminescent glow. Very pretty combo. The bottom drawer of the compact sticks slightly when I try to open it, but nothing a little jiggle can't fix. Overall I like it and I would repurchase. :) _______UPDATE__(6-12-06)____ Okay, I have been using this blush and highlighter over my mineral makeup and rice powder (as setting powder) for the past couple days, and the pigment shows up nicely. Today I decided to use my mineral makeup and my NARS Loose Powder (as the setting powder).... and I cannot get hardly any blush pigment to show up! I must have swept my blush brush through the blush 10 times, and still I have the barest hint of pink on my cheeks. ( ??? ) Now I think I know why some people are having problems with the pigment in this blush and others aren't. It seems that the makeup and powder that a person uses UNDER this blush somehow effects how it adheres to the cheeks and shows up. Lesson learned. So now I will only use this blush/highlighter duo when I am wearing my rice powder, and NOT when I am wearing my NARS powder. Just FYI for people having problems with the pigment ... try a different make-up/powder underneath.

Very cute product. IMO the pink shade is a darker version of Benefit Dandelion. Like a dusty pink rose. The goldish highlightes included in this cute compact reminds me of MAC Shy Angel. Very versitle product. Impressive amounts too. Darling Stila packaging ( though cardboard) includes a mirror.
